Agents from the Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services are trying to kill between 16 and 22 wolves at sites scattered across western Montana in response to recent livestock conflicts.

Carolyn Sime with Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks says it is unusual to have so many livestock attacks this late in the year. To date, 91 wolves have been killed in 2009 by officials or ranchers who caught the predators in the act.

Another 112 have died from hunting, natural causes and other reasons.

correction:  The headline says federal agents hunt for wolves from 5 packs however the text says they are working to remove gray wolves from six packs in Montana in response to recent livestock attacks.

Regardless, to call it "unusual" gets right under my skin because it was "predicted" in several discussions here and in the media.

"Disrupted packs and orphaned wolves could depredate more livestock."  Consequences of poor management actions by mankind.  Paid for by innocent wolves.MadProtestFrustrated

Amen...soon the wolves will be back on the endangered list between the wildlife people killing them and the wolf hunts the numbers will be way down again, history sits on the shelf always repeating itself, they never learn from the mistakes they make... 102.gif picture by muskyhusky

Three of the targeted packs are in southwest Montana's Big Hole Valley. The remainder are in the Beaverhead Valley near Grant, on private land north of Helena, and in the Ovando area.
